In February 2016 this year, I was approached by "The Africa Report" which is one of Europe's premier publications for African news, politics, economics, opinions and analysis to write an article for publication in their magazine.
I was asked to write alongside Ghanaian award winning rapper and song writer, M.anifest whose work ethic and commitment to excellence in his craft is one I HUGELY admire.
When I got the call to write for the magazine...I could not believe it and still can't believe it actually happened!!!
I was asked to submit a YES response to the question:
"Is today's African popular music too obscene?".
Even how I came to be contacted by the magazine to submit the piece is another testimony in itself. I was like, are you sure? Does my opinion matter? God just has a way of sending you encouragement when you really need it.
Also it was only after I submitted my write-up to the magazine that they told me I was writing alongside M.anifest (I had actually given him a shout-out in my article without even realising he was guest authoring the article with me).
In the words of Steve Jobs, the former Co-founder, Chairman, and CEO of Apple Inc.
I love writing and I will ALWAYS be grateful to ‘The Africa Report’ for being the FIRST magazine to give me this AMAZING opportunity. It’s truly humbling and I will forever be grateful.
